Time off for Caring Responsibilities

My Mum has a hospital appointment & needs me to go with her. I asked my boss if I could have two days unpaid leave to take Mum to her appointment but my boss said no as I'm not allowed any time off during my probation period. I would phone in sick but I've been off sick with my health problems quite a lot and I'm worried about getting a disciplinary. Mum needs to attend this appointment & we don't have anyone else that will go with her. Mum, due to her illness is refusing to go with an agency carer accompanying her which I would pay for.
Has anyone else been in this situation or can help me see a solution?
